General Note
Originally published: 1st ed. New York : Random House, 1952.
In the course of his wanderings from a Southern college to New York's Harlem, an American black man becomes involved in a series of adventures. Introduction explains circumstances under which the book was written. Ellison won the National Book Award for this searing record of a black man's journey through contemporary America. Unquestionably, Ellison's book is a work of extraordinary intensity -- powerfully imagined and written with a savage, wryly humorous gusto.
National Book Award, 1953.
